This is due to the fact that the pyrite is a paramagnetic mineral and influences the magnetic susceptibility of the whole rock less than ferromagnetic minerals.
As noted by Mullins (1977), the magnetic susceptibility of the fine earth (<2 mm) is higher in surface layers because of wildfires, which produce high temperatures and local anoxia conducive to the formation of maghemite (Anand and Gilkes 1987).
Molar conductivity, Magnetic Susceptibility and UV-Vis Spectroscopy of metal complexes.
When the magnetic dipole moments are in phase with the averaged magnetic field, the effective magnetic susceptibility become larger than zero (correspondingly, the effective permeability become larger than unity) causing the medium to be magnetized.
It is also possible to experimentally distinguish the enhancement in magnetic susceptibility caused by fire from that produced through weathering and soil formation processes (Oldfield and Crowther 2007).
Magnetic susceptibility peaks suggest marked short-term ENSO-style activity superimposed upon this record.
Observed and calculated Bouguer and RTP magnetic anomalies were adjusted by using the utilities offered by GM-SYS, by dividing the subsurface in a series of polygons with varying geometry and contrasting density and magnetic susceptibility values.
5T to 3T due to a doubling of magnetic susceptibility.
Worm and Banerjee (1987) measured several magnetic parameters in bulk sample and in magnetic microspherules from the impact layer of Petriccio section (Italy), and surface magnetic susceptibility in Pacific and Indian Oceans DSDP sedimentary cores.
Magnetic susceptibility surveys show Fe-oxide patterns that are typically dominated by maghemite and magnetite content (Mullins 1977; Thompson and Oldfield 1986; Evans and Heller 2003).
4] and found out that with increasing Na concentration x: (1) [alpha] monotonously increases while magnetic susceptibility and effective moment monotonically decrease; (2) the [kappa] and [rho] and heat capacity are not appreciably affected.
